Google released a list of the most uniquely popular Thanksgiving side dish in every state, based on searches.  In other words:  What side do people in a state Google more than people in other states?  Here are the results:

 

In Maryland, it's collard greens.

 

And here are the dishes for our surrounding states:

  • Pennsylvania - Candied sweet potatoes
  • Delaware - Butternut squash
  • Virginia - Corn pudding
  • West Virginia - Broccoli salad

 

Other things we've learned:

 

  •  The top side in South Dakota and Oregon is ambrosia salad, which is fruit salad made with marshmallows.

 

  • The most popular side dish in Colorado, Nevada, and New Mexico is pecan pie, and we have no idea how that's considered a side.

 

  • Tennessee's top side dish is mac and cheese, which is a good call.

 

  • Ohio might have the most obscure pick:  Seven-layer salad.  Apparently the seven layers are lettuce, celery, green pepper, onion, peas, cheese and bacon bits.
